Preloading agent keys in Activator
Is there a way to load agent key(s) when starting Activator, similar to PuTTY's pageant? When you start pageant, you can specify at least one keyfile, and pageant will load it and ask for a passphrase at startup. From then on, you're covered.
I've played with Activator, and I have not been able to get it to do this. The real-world problem this causes occurs when I open multiple server sessions at once when there is no agent key in Activator. Each session pops up a window asking for the key passphrase, and I have to enter it for each session. If the agent key is preloaded and authenticated in Activator, however, the sessions log right in with no problem.
Of course, I can load the agent key(s) manually upon reboot, but this is hard to remember and takes extra time.
I looked in the VanDyke help text, and I could find nothing about the Activator command line format, arguments, or flags.
Thanks for your help!
